In one of the saddest occasions in Irish sport, former Celtic, Manchester United, and Republic of Ireland midfielder Liam Miller was laid to rest today, having passed away on Friday aged just 36. Cork, including that he achieved the rarest feat of living his dreams, one message that stood out was that he was a sportsman with decency, humour, honesty, integrity and humility.

The former Republic of Ireland worldwide lost his short battle with cancer at the age of 36.

The ex-Celtic and Manchester United footballer was hailed as an "inspiration" at the Church of St John the Baptist in Ovens, Co.

Irish head coach and assistant coach, Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane, attended the funeral alongside the likes of John O'Shea and Kevin Kilbane. And he did. And he dreamed of playing for Ireland.

"He fought his illness with a ferocity because he wanted to survive for his family".

Among the gifts brought to the altar during the mass were football jerseys and photos of his family. "There was never a father like Liam".

"There was never a father like Liam - he gave every ounce of himself to his children".

"It's just terrible. They've had to look at Liam and mind him and care for him over the last few months since he came back from America, knowing he probably hadn't a very good long term future".

Manchester United also wore black armbands during their Premier League clash at Newcastle on Sunday in memory of Miller who spent two seasons at Old Trafford after leaving Celtic in 2005.

Republic manager O'Neill has described Miller as a "fantastic man".

Mr Sheedy said if he lived a dozen lifetimes he would not be "half the man" Miller was and that they were mourning an individual who was among "the best in the world".

Miller won 21 caps for the Republic of Ireland and won a European Championship for his country at under-16 level.

The Cork native also played for QPR, Hibernian, Australian clubs Perth Glory, Brisbane Roar and Melbourne City, home-town club Cork City and, most recently, Wilmington Hammerheads in the US.

He was a family man who was "utterly besotted" with his wife Clare and the couple's three young children, according to his brother-in-law Brian Sheedy.

The service took place at the Church of St. John the Baptist, where Miller was christened and confirmed.
